Dr. Atul Saini completed his Ph.D. from the Department of Geography at University of Delhi, India. His research interests are varied and mainly focused on monsoon onset, climate variability, trend analysis, climate teleconnection, extreme events and climate modelling. He was a Senior Research Fellow of University Grants Commission. He also worked as a researcher in DST Center of Excellence in Climate Modeling, Center of Atmospheric Sciences, IIT Delhi. He has good command over LaTeX and programming languages i.e. NCAR command language, R, GrADS, and Python.
Eapsa Berry is a student of Botany – Evolutionary Biology. She did her PhD research in Delhi University followed by postdoctoral research in UNAM, Mexico City. Her PhD research included ecological, evolutionary, and developmental studies of floral symmetry and corolla pigment patterns in angiosperm. She applies systematics, phylogenetic comparative methods, principles of plant morphology, and functional ecological studies to frame and answer evolutionary biological questions. Her recent interests pertain to Himalayan biogeography and endemism studies in the context of climate change. She loves to draw biological drawings and illustrations.
I am a geomorphologist, and my research interest lies in understanding the earth surface processes in different landscapes. In particular, I am interested in how glacial, fluvial and hillslope processes shape landscapes on geological time scales and how extreme events and natural hazards such as landslides and floods control sediment fluxes and changes in topography. My research approach covers a broad range of quantitative and qualitative geomorphological techniques. I combine field evidence and numerical geochronological techniques with topographical analysis, remote sensing, geophysical surveys, and numerical landscape evolution modelling to investigate the role of the geomorphic processes in landscape evolution.
